Free Government Phones

Easy Wireless

Easy Wireless is another phone company that offers free government Smartphones to eligible individuals/households. They’re able to offer free phones and free service because they participate in the federal Lifeline program. The Lifeline program offers both free cell phones and discounted landline service. Although the program offers both cell phones and discounted landline, participants must choose either the free phone or discounted service (may not participate in both). Since this scope of this site is free government phones, this article will only address the free phone option.
